Indian troops arrest occupied Kashmir’s former CM Farooq Abdullah

One of the Supreme Court judges, Sharad Arvind Bobde, said the situation in Kashmir, where thousands have died since an armed rebellion against Indian rule began three decades ago, as "a bad state of affairs".

The government's decision to wield the Public Safety Act (PSA) against former Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah beggars belief. In his petition, Vaiko had demanded that the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, who has been under house arrest since August 4, be released and allowed to attend an event in Chennai. Over the years, multiple reports have talked about how the draconian law is being misused, and young men in the Valley are being charged under it indiscriminately. The Act was amended in 2012 and some of its stricter provisions were relaxed. However, in the case of "no improvement in the conduct of the detainee", the detention can be extended to its full course of two years.

Owaisi, the Hyderabad MP, even questioned if Home Minister Amit Shah was untruthful on August 6, when he "shouted" in the Parliament that Farooq Abdullah was not under house arrest, but at his residence by choice. India's removal of the autonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir has strained ties with Pakistan, which has also claimed parts of the region.

Abdullah's son and former chief minister Omar Abdullah and another former chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti, as well as several other leaders have also been under detention since August 5, when the government announced the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status under Article 370 and the bifurcation of the state into the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. "The govt should explain why it considers him a PSA threat now". Sheikh Abdullah brought the Act as a deterrent against timber smugglers as it provided a jail term, without a trial, for up to two years.

Health officials: Two new cases of vaping-related illness confirmed in Washington
No single device, ingredient or additive has been identified in connection to the illnesses and deaths. Health officials have urged consumers to quit vaping altogether.

The Supreme Court on Monday also issued notice to the Centre, and the J&K administration on detention of the NC chief.

The solicitor general had argued against a notice being issued, saying that the petitioner had no locus standi on the matter, LiveLaw reported.

Vaiko, who said he is a close friend of Abdullah for past four decades, contended that constitutional rights conferred on the National Conference (NC) leader "have been deprived of on account of illegal detention without any authority of law". The apex court has asked for a response from the Centre by September 30.
